Medicines are always considered to be the ones that help us when we are sick but these medicines contain a lot of chemicals that can react with our body if we use them for long term.

fHence, many people these days are switching to natural medicines that are made from plants and herbs. Today people are becoming aware of the problems that they can face if they consume the same medicine over and over in order to keep themselves fit and healthy.

Hence, the trend of synthetically made medicines is slowly fading away as people are now moving towards the new kind of medicines that not only cure the people but also provide them with zero side effects.

Recently, Boiron, the world leader of homeopathic medicines did a research where they wanted to know more about what people really think when they buy their medicines.

The research was conducted by The Hartman Group and during the research it was found that more than 82% of the women shoppers in the United States of America are already aware of the side effect problems that they can have due to the medicines that they take and therefore many of them prefer to go for alternative medicines when they buy over the counter medications.

We know the universal truth that we resemble our parents because of our genes but having the same wrinkles as they had is not genetic at all. According to Dr. Jeanine B. Downie, dermatologist at the American board of Dermatology recently revealed the very same.

skin ageingDr. Downie believes that the majority of skin damages come from external sources like drinking less water,  increased exposure to sun,  smoking and of course stress.

Dr. Downing advises with a few tips in order to minimize skin ageing. As per a recent study conducted by the Skin Cancer Foundation, about 40% of adult Americans confessed the fact that they did not use sunscreen when they ventured out in the sun.

Dr. Downing advises not to do so. She says that irrespective of whether it’s a sunny day or a rainy day and irrespective of the ethnicity everyone should use a sunscreen of at least SPF 15 whenever they go out to minimize the effects of skin aging.

Another thing she advises to do is to use topical antioxidants. With a background of working with the manufacturing of Revaléskin she advises to get rid of all that by getting a potent antioxidant massage each day and then advises the application of the sunscreen after that on top of the antioxidant.
